Relaxing With LuLu

Rich took this picture of me and LuLu on Saturday evening.  She has the sweetest habit of climbing onto the back of the sofa and snuggling into me as I sit there.  If that’s not a hug, I don’t know what is.  Just for fun I Photoshopped it with a light watercolor effect and then softened the edges.

It’s nice to be loved.

  8. This photoshop watercolouring gives a very painterly effect. I've never used photoshop, but this is lovely enough for framing. What a pretty puppy, and you look so comfy with your gorgeous pillow!

    I had the same reaction as Hazel. I thought you sent us a painting. It's gorgeous and so is the Lulu love being dolled out to you. Precious.

  12. How precious is this!!! Yup looks like a hug to me, too. One paw around your neck, other being held in your hand and cheek gently touching your head...yup definitely a hug. I'm not sure, Leslie, but I think she kinda likes you! Love the effect you created. I agree with the others who suggest it should be framed!

  13. Leslie - I adore the water color effect on your photo. Are you considering having it printed on canvas, now? I would.

  15. oh, you need to frame this one & hang it on one of your walls! I love it! And you sure know the minute you look at it that she is wrapping you in love just the way you love her. What a gift we receive when our critters love us back!

Just read several of your posts on this blog and enjoyed the photos tremendously. I have put you into my reader now so I won't miss any of your posts. LuLu is sure growing up!!
